"Zakarpathaz" will be working with debtors
In five months of 2015, the "Zakarpathaz" PJSC has sent customers having debts for consumed natural gas more than 6700 warnings of termination of gas supply. The total amount of debt of consumers, that have receive such warnings, is UAH 13.5 million. The vast majority of debtors have voluntarily repaid the debts or entered into an agreement to repay the debt in the restructuring procedure. Gas supply was terminated to 973 consumers, whose total debt amounted to UAH 5.8 million.
Given the difficult economic situation in the country - a sharp decline in incomes due to exhange rates "jumps" on the foreign exchange market, significant increase in prices for essential commodities, significant raise of tariffs for gas and other utilities - timely payments for gas supply should not be expected in the future. However, the time has come to understand that gas is a commodity that we buy and therefore must pay for. After all, without payments for gas, the "Zakarpathaz" PJSC can not provide the region with gas in time and in necessary amount, maintain gas supply infrastructure in proper condition, ensure reliable operation of technical and support services of the company guaranteeing trouble-free gas supply.
"That's why, the "Zakarpathaz" PJSC believes that working with debtors is very important - the adviser to the chairman of the company Tomynets Victoria says. - We recommend customers not to waste time upon receipt of a debt notice, not to drive the situation into a dead end, and immediately contact the "Zakarpathaz" PJSC for a constructive resolution of the issue of debt repayment. Because the restoration of gas supply, after its termination because of debt, will require funds not only for full repayment of debt, but also to compensate for the cost of the procedure itself".
As of June 1, 2015 (excluding May), the debt of residential customers to "Zakarpathaz" PJSC amounts to UAH 86.9 million, which is UAH 36.1 million more than that at the beginning of the year. The rate of payments by individuals for 5 months of this year amounted to 91.3%, which is 8% less than that at the beginning of 2015.
